CounterPointe10 Call for Choreographers (DEADLINE: DEC 10)
Norte Maar for Collaborative Projects in the Arts
Norte Maar announces a call for choreographers for its 10th annual season of CounterPointe: new work by women choreographers and their collaborations with women artists.
Performances are March 24-26, 2023 in The Mark O'Donnell Theater at the Entertainment Community Fund in Brooklyn. We are interested in producing a program which represents the diversity of NYC--there is no house style, though the pointe shoe must be part of the work. Interested choreographers should be based in the NYC-metro area, have experience of presenting work, and be committed to collaborating with a visual artist. If selected Norte Maar will curate and connect you with a collaborator.
You will have approximately 2 months to create a new work together. Choreographers and artists each receive a $500 fee.
Email a brief cover letter addressing your interest in collaboration and links to recent choreography. Include a link to a work for stage, this will not be a virtual program. Please also include a link to work on pointe or express why you are interested and capable of working with pointe. Deadline for receipt of submissions: December 10, 2022.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org (Please do not email video attachments. Selections will be made on a first come / first served basis)
Additional details: Choreographers are responsible for selection and rehearsal of their own dancers. These new commissioned works shall not have been presented in the NYC/metro area within 2 months before or 2 months after the CounterPointe program.
